's bring in kelly o'donnell. she is standing by this columbus, ohio, this morning. kelly, ohio was the state everyone was looking at. it was the one that everybody said all eyes there and we'll know who will be the next president. how did it play out last night? >> it certainly got tense at sometimes, willie. certainly voters throughout the day when we were polling places, you could really tell they had a sense that they had a big role to play. as the evening went, there was almost a bit of surprise at how early it was called. the officials here at the state house had been telling us be prepared for a late night. it could even go into the late counting of provisional ballots that would happen later this month. but that was not to be. the models that everyone was using to forecast this put ohio in the president's column and then there was a wait a minute moment where the romney campaign was not satisfied that enough votes had been counted yet. they felt there was potential to close the gap and overtake the president in some precincts they thought were going to go their way. ther
will it means court battles like we saw in florida in 2000. we're joined now from columbus, ohio. good morning, scott. >> reporter: good morning, carl. if it is close, even remotely as close as florida 2000, there are a lot of people who say the legal battles could make florida 2000 look like child's play. we'll have more on that later in the program. ohio is a tricky state. economically and so on which we'll also get to in a moment. i want to tell you about turnout. 1.8 million absentee ballots sent out in ohio. that's a record. as you can see, the students have been turning out here at ohio state university so there is a youth vote turnout as well. it is a tricky state in the campaign narrative this time around. the question is who gets credit for an economy that's doing better than the rest of the country? is it the auto bailout and stimulus? give credit to the president? or did all of this happen in spite of the president and with thanks to the state's republican governor who was on "meet the press" on sunday. >> we made ohio safe for business expansion. we balanced our budget. running hal
, columbus, ohio. >>> nightmare scenario, ron. all right, thank you. >>> well, 2012 presidential election already made history with a record number of early voters. about 46 million americans, more than one out of every three voters, cast an early ballot this year. our latest polling shows president obama has a narrow three-point lead among those who voted before today. >>> and, of course, there are also 33 senate races to be decided today in addition to the presidential race. among the highest profile races, the one in massachusetts between democrat elizabeth warren and incumbent scott brown, two former governors are facing off in virginia. a democrat, tim kaine, taking on republican george allen. in missouri, claire mccaskill faces republican todd akin. the race, remember, gained national attention after akin's comments about rape and pregnancy. >>> on top of that, several hot button social issues on the ballot for voters to decide. gay marriage is on the ballot in four states. maryland, maine, washington, and minnesota. immigration questions will be answered in several states as well i
. and very soon he will be rallying the crowds in columbus, getting a boost from some a-list celebrities. meantime, mitt romney, he is traveling up the eastern seaboard with stops in florida, ohio, virginia, and, of course, new hampshire. and during the next hour we will take you live to his event in fairfax, virginia. speaking of mitt romney, he's already making his case in lynchburg and jim acosta son the campaign trail with him. hey, jim. >> reporter: with a slew of new battleground state polls showing mitt romney trailing president obama only slightly on this day before election day, the gop nominee is making his closing argument to voters. at a campaign stop here in virginia, and earlier this morning in florida, romney warned the crowd that the country could be in store for another recession and potentially another debt ceiling crisis if mr. obama gets another four years in office. romney is trying to make the case that he's the leader that can bring the country together. here's what he had to say? >> when i'm elected, the economy and the american jobs are likely to still be very st
other parts of the country. still, though, a columbus dispatch poll shows the state tied within the margin of error. with their voices strained from around the clock campaigning, both candidates spent the eve of the election offering closing arguments across a combined seven key states. governor romney focusing on three that could help him have the easiest path to 270 electoral votes. he ended in manchester, new hampshire, where his campaign launched nearly a year and a half ago. >> this is a special moment for ann and for me because this is where our campaign began. you got this campaign started a year and a half ago at the farm. your primary vote put me on the path to win the republican nomination and tomorrow your votes and your work right here in new hampshire will help me become the next president of the united states. >> the president spent his final hours on the campaign trail in three midwestern states that could deliver him a second term. even without winning florida, virginia or north carolina, the final campaign of his political career, president obama returned to the
columbus is, the state capital is. he says that the democrats have done a great job of getting out early voting there. and that in particular, ohio state university students have voted in huge proportions. he says the republicans are doing well when it comes to early mail-in ballots but he says the ground game by the democrats has been very strong. guys? tracy: i'm telling you, it will be a late flight, gerri. get your red bull. it will be interesting. i don't know. >> absolutely. lori: i'm more optimistic we'll have a definitive winner. i know where you will be. you will be on the air indefinitely. tracy: poor neil. we have a ways to go. lori: we have reporting here. stick with us, fox business is the only place to be on election day and election night. a special stuart are varney@5:00 eastern. lou dobbs will guide you through all the returns. do not miss it. you can't afford it. don't go anywhere yet. tracy and i will be you through the afternoon. come wednesday morning we should know, again she doubts it but we should though who our president will be but does the uncertainty end inter
in dayton and in cincinnati and columbus, thousands of people stood in 30-degree weather for hours waiting to vote this weekend. when he was asked about these long lines john husted had this to say. >> in ohio, we have 35 days to vote. this is the 34th day to vote. it's very easy to vote in this state. >> very easy, as long as you have a snow suit and a tent and a spare six hours. former new jersey governor christine todd whitman summed it up beautifully. >> i do have to say that in this day and age it's absolutely inexcusable in this country we have anything like this going on. i led delegations around the world to watch voting and this is the kind of thing you expect in a 30 world country, not in the united states of america. >> good for her. good for her. when people stand in line for hours in the heat or in 30-degree cold just for the purpose of exercising this privilege of voting, you at home should be furious! and even more, you should be inspired. i know that i am. i mean this is america. it shouldn't be made to hard, but i just want to say thank you to those voters in florida and i
a visit to a columbus, ohio field office. i know everyone in my neighborhood the ones that will vote and don't and what it takes to get them. she added they just shipped in a romney staffer a couple of weeks ago. how do you think is going to win around here? steve, that is the story. yes, and a lot of this you have that quote saying that we didn't see this coming. there was an assumption saying that was showing up in the polls. the republicans were saying what they didn't have was the infrastructure in place to bring that into a reality. part of it is they were bogged down in a primary. and part of it too was that is the nature of relying on the religious groups. and they hoped and sort of out sourced the gotv. >> i'm actually surprised steve, when governor dean became chairman in 2005, karl rove he used this methodology don't you remember the 72 hour strategy, we developed the under pinnings that became what the obama campaign did and one of the things that is so important about the quote that the woman made, to this day the most effective way to get a vote is a person to person con
in columbus, ohio. shannon bream at the republican watch party if des moines, iowa. good evening, shannon. >> reporter: hello, bret. well, republicans here in iowa are hoping that romney will pull off a somewhat unexpected win. there is something down ticket that could help him. in 2009, the state supreme court here legalized same-sex marriage. that motivated and mobilized conservatives and evangelical christians. they had three of the justices that signed on to the opinion removed. a fourth justice on the ballot. that is not all. control of the state senate is control by democrats. conservatives hope to win it back to give them control of the both state houses and enabling them to pass legislation to been a the same-sex marriage. if the evident to get out the vote on the same-sex marriage issue is successful, it could help romney. secretary of state here says there have been very few complaints about the voting irregularities. the biggest complaint is vote whose didn't get the "i voted" sticker. take it now to steve brown in ohio. >> reporter: hey, shannon. yes, in ohio, the polls close
. the cliche about ohio is there are fiveeparatehio there's columbus, more catholics up in the north. but it stretches south. >> woodruff: do you see anything else in those numbers? are are we about to make another call? wyoming, okay. we're calling wyoming for mitt romney. the home of dick cheney. i think this is the state that president obama had the worst showing in, in 2008 if i'm not mistaken. so this is not also not a surprise. >> ifill: also dick cheney's state. >> woodruff: we're going to look it up right now. any of those results say anything? >> population density does matter. you go to a dense area you're probably in a democratic area. you go to a sparse area -- and wyoming certainly qualifies -- you're probably in a republican area. >> woodruff: it's beautiful out there. >> it certainly is. their electoral vote should count for more. >> ifill: so is new york. we were talking earlier and we were talking to margaret about exactly why mitt romney would spend his day today in a dense area. i saw he gave an interview to a radio station where he sicay said i don't want to sit a
'm going to be watching most is the area around columbus, franklin county. and it's not just for a selfish purpose. i really think that is going to be a county that could swing either way. we've seen that in congressional races and we've seen that in presidential races in the past. a lot of folks have looked at southwest ohio where cincinnati is. it's expected president obama will take cincinnati. i think franklin county could be where a lot of action is tonight. i can oaga county, where cleveland is, that's going to be heavily democratic. in fact, all of northern ohio is going to be heavily democratic. western ohio, alongside i-75, which leads up to michigan, that's going to be strong republican turnout. and of course we have the rural areas. those are going to be interesting to watch as well. >> one of the things we heard so much in the campaigns is it's a story about unemployment, and especially in ohio. i've pulled up the unemployment numbers, according to the bureau of labor statistics as of september 2012, and on the lower half of the state you see pretty bad unemployment, 9.4% in mo
the key and political divide remains and in "the columbus dispatch." ohio wins with ohio. the "boston globe" reads "economy kept obama afloat. blocked romney win, and here's a forward thinking headline in "the wisconsin state journal." observers say paul ryan now a front-runner for the 2016 gop nomination. tell me we're not already talking about 2016. >> let the race begin. of course, we're keeping our eye on another big story as well this morning. can you probably see the flags moving pretty briskly behind us. that is a sign of what's to come as nasty weather, a nor'easter bears down on already storm-ravaged parts of this east coast. al is live along the new jersey shore with what we can expect. >> all right. we want to get right to our top story, the election results. nbc's kristen welker had a late night covering president obama's campaign, and she joins us this morning from chicago. kristen, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah. well, president obama is waking up as a two-term president. a lot of people said it wouldn't be possible because of the stagnan
was there today. and our steve brown is there as well live in columbus with more on this enormous battleground. what's the mood, steve? >> well, the polls have closed but voting continues. it is a situation around the ohio state university campus that we're aware of now that if you are in line as the polls close you still get a chance to vote. they will let whoever was in the line part of the 7:30 vote. we started receiving reports that there was a line of over 700 nero -- near ohio state university and one person said it is more like 200. the governor said he was on his way out there to keep folks entertained and keep them company to keep them in line. in this state there is no such thing as extra votes. karl alluded to this a few minutes ago there will be an earlier indicator how this state goes. folks who were veteran political watchers in the state say about 45 minutes in, about 8:15 because the early votes are the ones that get counted and because the obama campaign has made it so central to the campaign strategy that should give them an idea how many votes or what size of a lead the ear
with us? we will go on to brooklyn, in columbus, ohio, on our democratic line. >> i just wanted to say congratulations to obama and his family, and go obama. >> we will go next to miami, florida. >> i just wanted to basically say congratulations, obama. i am proud to be a first-time voter. i think things are really going to change in four years. it is his second time in. i think, to the point that he is not running for reelection, the republicans in congress will -- they will stop stalling everything he is trying to do, and try to give the president a chance to change things. >> steve think this will be different? >> i definitely do. this election had a lot of name- calling, trying to attack the other candidates. people have noticed that, and have reacted negatively toward the. obviously, romney did not win the election. i think people are looking for the positive things they will do for the country, instead of, this guy is going to do this. things like that. i think it is a step forward. >> we are joined from nebraska on the independent line. thanks for waiting. >> thank you for takin
in ohio turned out to be bigger than ohio's 18 electoral votes. dean reynolds is in columbus to show us how he did it. dean, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. well his percentage was down from four years ago but 50-48 last night was plenty to win the electoral votes of ohio, all 18 of them, and the seeds of barack obama's victory were really sown about four years ago during his first presidential run when he left in place many staffers, many field offices who really continued to work th state over the next four years, more than 130 field offices across the state. they've dwarfed his opponents footprint. mitt romney had only 39 offices and he shared many of them with the republican national committee. now the president's decision to bail out the auto industry paid big dividends for him. it was a very popular move in a state where one out of every eight jobs is connected to that industry, the fact that the state's jobless rate was at 7% below the national average was another plus for him, and finally, his courtship of the state. he visited 22 times during this year alone, mo
they had to vote provisionally. there was a place in columbus. there were 50 people standing in line, 40 of those 50 came out having voted provisionally. you know, people not being on the list when they should have been on when they registered, and so we are really concerned about that. pennsylvania. this campaign of confusion around identification, the aclu won that lawsuit. earlier, i got a tax from someone who went to college with me saying that we are required to ask for identification. she told them i am not showing it to you because i know i do not have to, but that kind of confusion leads to a real kind of question. at the end of the day after the election is close, we are going to be really having to deal with this mess and make sure that we have free, fair, and accessible elections and that we are pushing back on all of these voter suppression efforts that were passed by politicians trying to manipulate the laws for their own game. >> were you surprised by what you have seen? and do you think this is going to determine the outcome of the election? and this issue of voter suppres
those votes. we've been to columbus, cleveland. those are the high numbers that the president, scott, is too close to call there tonight my campaign sources say. >> pelley: jan, thank you. the president of course has been working ohio just as hard. it is key to the president's election tonight if he is to be re-elected tonight. if he can win ohio, he can effectively block the romney campaign. and nancy cordes is covering the uniquobama campaign. she's in chicago tonight. nancy you spent quite a bit of time in ohio as well. >> i sure did, scott. the other day was a perfect example. we're five days out from election day. the president spentsdz the you're day barn storming ohio. heads home to the whitehouse to sleep and then comes right back out to ohio in the morning. to give you a sense of just sowch he naifers this one state, he held 101 campaign rallies across the country he this election season. 26 of them, more than a quarter were in one state, ohio. and he wasn't just in the big cities, he went to the suburbs, he went to small towns. and the main reason that the ohio campaign fo
ron claiborne wants to weigh in. he's in ohio, he's in columbus right now and you are there at the secretary of state's office and we know every single vote, every polling place is being watched tonight, ron. >> reporter: they're being watched very closely and, diane, 1.6, 1.8 million voters actually voted early either by absentee ballots or in person going to early voting stations. those will be the first votes counted. we start to get those in about 20, maybe 30 minutes from now. we will get an indication, for example, if there is a high turnout in those early voting areas around cleveland. that would be very favorable to president obama. and meanwhile, as you were saying, the auto bailout has figured prominently in this state something like one in eight jobs are involved in the auto industry and the obama campaign was able to really bludgeon mitt romney with that issue in recent days in a way magnifying romney's attack line saying that those jeeps would be built in china. the response was so overwhelming by the obama administration and auto executives it may hav
campaign 2012 coverage. our next call from columbus, ohio. this is vai on our line for democrats. caller: fellow how are you? host: tulsa about the races you are watching? caller: sharon brown is ohio. he has done everything. i do not believe he is honest. he said nasty things about mr. brown. he is a wonderful man. and he is great for ohio. i am also a veteran. i support all of the things that the president and the democratic party has done for ohio. i have seen many elections. i am 81 years old. i support all of the women's rights groups. and with the president is doing for our country. now my daughter is from indiana. she is also a strong supporter of the president. we all work with the campaign. i have a brother in new jersey who is going through the terrible things that happened there. also in support of the president. host: have you done anything as far as the brown campaign in the state? caller: i am a little old for knocking on the doors but i worked and one of the offices here for the democratic party. i have been sick for the last three weeks, but i have knocked on doors. i vot
ohio, our capital city, columbus, ohio. >> you're looking at everything. sounds like you just listed absolutely everything in your entire state, sir. >> every vote counts in ohio. >> it certainly does, governor strickland. my question for you -- margaret hoover here -- what are the democrats doing specifically to make up for the loss in voter registration that has happened since 2008? some reports have it as high as 490,000 voters, fewer are registered to vote now, four years later. what have you done to make up for that? especially the losses in democratic counties. >> this obama organization is phenomenal, let me tell you. we know where our voters are. we've been in contact with them. the obama organization never left ohio. they've been here for the last four years. we've had over 700 organizers over the last several months in ohio. 120 field offices or more, probably a little more than that. and so we've got our early vote out. we're happy about that. and now today tess a beautiful day and we know where our voters are and we're communicating with them. i'm just so -- so confident
for obama. it was cleveland columbus and dayton were out. those are democratic strong holds. so i love this -- john -- what's his name? >> husted. >> stephanie: so he -- he had this press conference. did you see. he had a large screen that showed -- there weren't that many votes separating obama and romney. he emphasized most of the votes that had yet to come in were from urban areas. >> so they don't count. >> in case you haven't noticed he's black. >> stephanie: he avoided saying specifically that those areas tend to vote democratic because they're. >> black. >> oh my goodness, he's black. >> stephanie: he invited reporters to examine the results of past elections and draw your own conclusions. >> stephanie: blacks. >> black people. you know what i'm talking about. do i have to say it? >> stephanie: does he have any point say -- the voter suppression didn't work. good night. slam. >> backfired, big time. >> stephanie: you know why obama won ohio, chris? dave swagger. >> he's with -- >> stephanie: ohio.
a lot of people and the columbus because of that 47%. caller: i am really upset. i cannot believe we again that mr. obama and the white house. -- in the white house. i am a nurse. it's been hard in the valley of finding a job. home health has completely -- patients are being [unintelligible] due to medicare cuts. you see it and you go to the grocery store and do you see these ladies with their purses and they pay with [unintelligible] caller: it is a very dark day. i am shocked at how this man could have won again. i feel that the election, so many people are out of work, i am an executive in this community. i lost a job and was able to find a job but there are no jobs. the woman who called before, the situation with obama with our troops and with our embassy, i think he handled improperly. i would not be surprised before he gets ready to give his inaugural speech that there might not be an impeachment trial that starts. i think the country is more divided today than ever before. i think he was able to win because so many people have moved to the bottom side of the scale. because the
of the columbus dispatch obama wins with ohio. it was ohio that put the president over the top in the 270 electoral votes needed to win the whitehouse. and dean reynolds has been spending a lot of time in ohio for us covering that state because we knew it would very likely be the state to tip the balance and sure enough it was. dean. >> scott you know the thing that we noticed here when we got here, it seems like five, six weeks ago is the size of the obama footprint in this state. i mean it just dwarfs gone romney -- governor romney's efforts. there was 130 field offices and a lot of them have been here for four years. there were countless staffers, paid as well as volunteers versus about 40 offices for the governor. and he had to share those with the republican national committee regularly. i saw those ads that you folks were talking about earlier this evening, and they were devastating going right after governor romney's record at bain capital. i also kept hearing about the bailout from workers in ohio who were very high on that because one out of every eight jobs in ohio is connected
, tester is the slight underdog. >> i bet it's thursday. >> hey, let's bring in right now from columbus, ohio, republican senator of ohio and a man who is an adviser of the romney campaign and wishes he could vote too on intrade because he would think it would make a lot of money is senator rob portman. looks like a lot of money being bet on democrats, rob, this is our chance. this is our chance to make us some cash. >> clearly they've been watching msnbc too much, joe, that's all i can say. >> oh. oh. the little jab there. okay. >> very good. >> luckily it's the voters who get to decide. luckily the voters get to decide. and i'll tell you, the passion's on our side this year. i heard you playing the boss there, the music, they had the boss yesterday, we had the passion. i was at my 20th rally in ohio in the last month or so and the energy and enthusiasm is on our side. as you know, at the end of the day, if you've got a grass roots machine in place, which we do and of you got the energy and enthusiasm, it gives you an advantage. i think we'll pick up ohio and they say so goes the count
take that remarkable statement with the interview that speaker boehner gave to politico in columbus, ohio, yesterday. we have both republican leaders going in ready to fight. they're not, they don't seem to be chastened at all. >> right. and go back and watch "60 minutes" from this past sunday where they had this segment -- it wasn't the best ever -- but there was an interesting interview with harry reid and membership mcconnell simultaneously told. i think the first interview they've done perhaps ever, and you watch the body language, and you understand why we have a broken senate, why we have a broken congress. the two of them just basically point the finger at the other, show no willingness to compromise, don't feel like they have to compromise because they feel they're winning the ideological war, and they feel that their opponent -- they vilify their opponent saying that they're the ones who are making the miscalculation, they're the ones that are making congress an inhospitable place as far as getting things done. >> and yet there's some evidence that there eventually will be
and stretched his energy policy. they're democrats, but he thinks he can pick up the votes. columbus, cleveland, those are high numbers for the president. it's too close to call there my campaign sources say. >> jan, thank you. the president has been working ohio just as hard. it is key to the president's election tonight if he is to be reelected tonight. if he can win ohio, he can effectively block the romney campaign and nancy cortis is covering the obama campaign. you spent time in ohio as well. >> reporter: i sure did, scott. it was a perfect example. we were out five days from election day. the president spends the entire day barn storming ohio, heads to the white house to sleep and comes right back out to ohio in the morning. to give you a sense of just how much he favored this one state, he held 101 campaign rallies across the country this campaign season. 26 of them, more than a quarter, were in one state, ohio and he wasn't just in the big cities. he went to suburbs and small towns. the main reason the obama campaign felt their chances were better in ohio than say virginia or florida
'll be in columbus today at different times. mitt romney has made campaign stops in florida and virginia before heading off to ohio and then new hampshire. both candidates hold their final rallies tonight at the same time. president obama in des moines iowa. bruce string teen will be with the president. mr. romney will be in new hampshire tonight with singer kid rock. our final coverage starts at 8:00 eastern. >> we're going to be watching the counties around denver. you'll hear a lot of talk about jefferson county whichever candidate in the presidential race wins those counties, they have a much easier path to winning the state of colorado. i'll be looking closely at the number of republican votes coming out of douglas county on the western slope. another swing county we pay attention to is northern colorado, it's fort collins is there, home to colorado state university. then we'll be looking at as far as democrats boulder and denver and seeing if they're getting their numbers the way they want to. and the democrats have paid considerable attention to the southwest corner of the state. so we'l
american population. in most places, those tend to go democratic. from columbus, indiana on the democratic line. caller: i am wanting to have a conversation or have the speaker discuss what he felt the numbers represented in terms of the 39% of white voters. people make assumptions about the various minorities and who would represent their interests best. maybe there is more about that percentage of white voters who shows -- who chose obama. guest: the president also strong support among white voters came from college educated -- the president's strongest support among white voters came from college-educated white women. it is also true that the president did fairly well with white, working-class voters in key states such as ohio. his ability to hold on to support for what you might think of as the old democratic coalition, which was heavily focused on white, working-class voters -- he held on to those voters in ohio, wisconsin, iowa, in part because of support for the auto bailout, in part because of mitt romney's background as a venture capitalist did not sit well with those voters. the
, leaves then to go to ohio, back to ohio, columbus, ohio this afternoon speaking to a big event at the nationwide arena in columbus. then he goes to des moines we love you iowa, too. iowa is going to deliver for obama, his last campaign event in iowa. the first lady will accompany him today. they will end up in chicago, in their home, ready to sit out election day and celebrate tomorrow night. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >> good morning. happy monday morning monday, november 5. great to see you today. welcome to the full court press. the day before the election and wild campaigning day today for barack obama and mitt romney. wouldn't you know it, the election's not even here yet and the republicans are trying to steal it. in florida over the weekend. rick scott and the legislature cut the early voting and thousands not able to vote until 1:00 in the morning the governor still refused to extend early voting. it's looking like 2000 in florida all over again. we'll find you the what had that's about and a whole lot more here today. let's get the latest, lisa fergus
of columbus about 30 minutes. >> what does turn out like today, or did you vote early? >> i voted today. i voted today at a very small community church. matter of fact, i was by myself. someone was walking out as i walked in. >> as a republican, what is your reaction to the results? >> i am unhappy. i am the republican unicorn that is going to tell you why, romney it lost. i have to agree with the lady that spoke about the republicans going so far right. i want to reclaim the republicans back, where they used to be. it started with president bush, the second bush, and the patriot act. it basically destroyed civil rights. i went crazy at that point. i just thought, what is going on with this party? i have always been a republican. now, they are going so far to the right it is ridiculous. they used to be the party of fiscal responsibility. they used to be the party of government staying out of your personal business, out of your home. now, that are wanting to tell people who they can marry, and all this other stuff. it is ridiculous. john boehner needs to take back the republican party. star
